  • Randal Grichuk Homers In Three-Hit Game

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Randal Grichuk had three hits Friday night, including a solo home run. His 11th long ball of the year came in the first inning off Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner. He scored two runs in the 6-5 loss. Grichuk hasn't been able to get it going this season, but he does have four multi-hit performances in his last nine games. With a .718 OPS, 39 runs scored, 54 RBI, and three steals in 350 plate appearances this season, Grichuk remains a fantasy option in only the deepest leagues.

  • Rockies Call Up Elehuris Montero, Ryan Feltner

    The Colorado Rockies recalled infielder Elehuris Montero and left-hander Ty Blach from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday. The team also added right-hander Ryan Feltner as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the San Diego Padres, and he will start in Game 1. Montero, the team's No. 6 prospect per MLB Pipeline, will give the team another right-handed bat with Kris Bryant (foot) landing on the injured list on Monday night. The 23-year-old Dominican has gone 6-for-34 (.176) with no homers, no RBI and 15 strikeouts in his first 11 major league games, and he's unlikely to see regular playing time. Feltner has a 5.59 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 37 innings over eight outings (seven starts) for the Rockies in 2022. He'll be a shaky streaming option in fantasy.

  • Kris Bryant Lands On Injured List

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Monday. Bryant had been getting treatment on the foot while trying to play through a bout of plantar fasciitis in his left foot but he and the team wound up deciding to place him on the IL on Monday. The Rockies recalled infielder Alan Trejo in a corresponding move. This will be the oft-injured Bryant's third stint on the injured list this season after he signed with Colorado in the offseason. Bryant is hitting .306 with five homers, 28 runs, and 14 RBI in just 160 at-bats in 2022.

  • Kris Bryant Scratched On Monday

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) has been scratched from Monday's game against the San Diego Padres. He was removed from Sunday's contest due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The organization decided to have Bryant serve as the designated hitter to help rest his foot on Monday. Despite that, it sounds like Bryant isn't quite ready to play and will be removed from Monday's lineup. Garrett Hampson will take his spot in the lineup, so fantasy managers should make sure to pull Bryant out of their lineups.

  • Kris Bryant Pulled Early On Sunday

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) was pulled out early during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The right-handed slugger has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. That being said, it sounds like it was renewed soreness in his foot that led him to being taken out of this contest. Fantasy managers should consider Bryant as day-to-day. It's worth noting that rest is one of the better ways to resolve this issue, so he could sit out of the lineup for a few days. Fantasy managers will have to check back for more updates.

  • Rockies Holding Onto Kyle Freeland, Antonio Senzatela, German Marquez,

    The Colorado Rockies are reportedly set to hold onto starting pitchers Kyle Freeland, Antonio Senzatela, and German Marquez. This news comes on the heels of earlier news that the Rockies were extending closer Daniel Bard and not planning to trade first baseman C.J. Cron. The Rockies obviously think they are very close to competing and want to keep their top assets around. For Rockies fans, this news may sting a bit as just last season the Rockies kept Trevor Story around only for him to walk in free agency. Fortunately, all the players the Rockies are reportedly keeping this season are under contract at least through next year. For the three starters, this news means their fantasy value remains limited to streamer option only.

  • Daniel Bard Signing A Two-Year Extension With The Rockies

    Colorado Rockies closer Daniel Bard is signing a two-year contract extension with the Rockies on Saturday, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. Bard has been excellent for Colorado this season, posting a 1.91 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 43:19 K:BB ratio to go along with 21 saves over 37 2/3 innings. The 37-year-old reliever is now off the trade market, so contending teams will need to look elsewhere for bullpen help with the trade deadline right around the corner. The extension is worth around $19 million, per Feinsand.

  • C.J. Cron, Daniel Bard Unlikely To Be Traded

    The Colorado Rockies are likely to remain quiet at this year's trade deadline, which means it's unlikely they'll deal first baseman C.J. Cron or closer Daniel Bard. The Rockies think they still have a shot at the postseason, so they aren't willing to part with their top players. Multiple teams are interested in Bard as a rental piece, but the Rockies think they have a good chance to re-sign him. He's been excellent this year with a 1.91 ERA and 21 saves. Cron is the team's best player, and the Rockies see him helping them contend in the future. Shortstop Jose Iglesias and right-hander Chad Kuhl are also unlikely to be dealt by Tuesday, while it's possible the team parts ways with veteran reliever Alex Colome, who can give contending teams an experienced relief arm.

  • Connor Joe Returns To The Lineup On Thursday

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Connor Joe is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against left-hander Tyler Anderson and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He will be leading off and playing first base. Joe exited this past Sunday's game after suffering an injury while diving for a catch in the field. The team stated that he was dealing with general soreness after the incident and he was held out of action for the team's next three games. The 29-year-old has had an underwhelming year overall in 2022. Over 87 games, he's slashed .257/.363/.377 with five home runs, six stolen bases, 24 RBI and 50 runs.

  • Daniel Bard Drawing Trade Interest

    Multiple teams are interested in Colorado Rockies closer Daniel Bard, according to sources. It's not a certainty that the Rockies will trade the impending free agent, but the 37-year-old could be one of the more impactful rentals in this year's relief market with the trade deadline approaching on Aug. 2. Bard has been outstanding as the Rockies closer in 2022, posting a career-low 1.91 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 21 saves, 43 strikeouts and 19 walks in 37 2/3 relief innings. His 21 saves are tied with Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano and Cleveland Guardians closer Emmanuel Clase for fifth in all of baseball, just seven behind Josh Hader and Taylor Rogers. If the Rockies were to trade Bard by next Tuesday, Alex Colome and Carlos Estevez would be the likely candidates to see save chances the rest of the way.

  • Adael Amador Continues To Impress In Single-A

    Colorado Rockies shortstop prospect Adael Amador went 2-for-4 with a double and home run for Single-A Fresno on Wednesday. Amador is a top-five prospect for the Rockies and has impressed with a .307 batting average to go along with 12 homers, 40 RBI and 18 stolen bases. At just 19 years of age, Amador is still a few years away from the big leagues, but the switch-hitter has impressed enough this season for dynasty managers to start filing his name away. His biggest flaw at the moment is his defense and it's no guarantee that he remains at shortstop, but with his ability to his for both power and swipe bags, he can be a strong option in a few years for managers.

  • Antonio Senzatela Exits Wednesday's Start Early

    Colorado Rockies right-hander Antonio Senzatela (foot) was removed from Wednesday's start against the White Sox after being hit by a comebacker on the left foot in the top of the seventh inning. The right-hander was checked out but the trainers before being removed from the game. He allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five across 6 2/3 innings. The severity of his foot injury is unknown at this time and is considered day-to-day. Senzatela recently returned to action after spending time on the injured list with a shoulder injury. It's unclear if Senzatela will make his next scheduled start; stay tuned.

  • Kris Bryant To Serve As DH Against White Sox

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) will serve as the designated hitter and bat third on Wednesday against Chicago White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito. Bryant revealed on Tuesday night that he has been playing through plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It's very possible that we'll see the 30-year-old get more starts as the team's DH moving forward in order to keep him off his feet as much as possible. Bryant has only played in 37 games in his first year in Colorado, but he's hitting a strong .301/.370/.476 with an .846 OPS, five home runs, 14 RBI and 25 runs scored so far. As long as he remains in the lineup, he'll be useful to fantasy managers.

  • Kris Bryant Diagnosed With Plantar Fasciitis

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) revealed after Tuesday's night's 2-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox that he was dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He is hopeful that he'll be able to play through the injury through a treatment method that includes shoe inserts and icing. Bryant played designated hitter in the team's game on Tuesday and he's likely to remain in the spot going forward in order to preserve his foot. He stated that his foot currently hurts anytime it hits the ground, which certainly doesn't sound encouraging, but we'll see if he can continue to manage the injury and avoid the injured list.

  • Kris Bryant Back In Lineup Tuesday

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) will serve as the designated hitter and bat third on Tuesday against Chicago White Sox right-hander Michael Kopech. Bryant missed Monday's game due to soreness in his foot and saw a specialist on Tuesday before rejoining the lineup. The four-time All-Star has played in only 36 games this year due to injuries in his first season in Colorado, but he's swung the bat well when healthy, going 42-for-140 (.300) with five home runs, 14 RBI and 25 runs scored over 158 plate appearances. The 30-year-old has been even better in the month of July, sporting a .339/.403/.662 slash line with a 1.064 OPS, five home runs, 10 RBI and 12 runs scored in 16 games. Get him back into your starting fantasy lineups.

  • Connor Joe Not In Tuesday's Lineup, Available Off Bench

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Connor Joe will not be part of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against right-hander Michael Kopech and the Chicago White Sox. He is dealing with general soreness and this will be his second straight game on the bench. However, he will be available to pinch-hit off the bench for the contest. Joe began experiencing general soreness after attempting a diving catch in Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. He was removed from the contest after the incident and hasn't taken the field since.

  • Jose Iglesias Out With Foot Injury Tuesday

    Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Iglesias (foot) will be held out of the team's starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. The 32-year-old fouled a ball off of his left foot during Monday's game and he was forced to leave the contest. He underwent X-rays after the incident and the X-rays came back negative. According to Rockies beat writer Patrick Saunders, Iglesias's left foot remains sore, but the hope is that he will be back in the lineup on Wednesday.

  • Michael Toglia Continues To Swat Homers

    Colorado Rockies first base prospect Michael Toglia has put on an impressive display of power as of late. The talented switch-hitter can launch the ball over the fence in all parts of the field. Discipline-wise, Toglia has solid vision at the plate but has still shown a tendency to swing and miss due to his power-heavy approach. Defensively, the first baseman looks very strong at his position with smooth glovework and an overall natural feel. He could shift to a role in left field if needed, but the expectation is that first base will be Toglia's long-term home. The 23-year-old has looked great since returning from the All-Star Break, going 4-for-10 with two home runs and three RBI. He scored four times in the process and has emerged as a player whose future fantasy value will be boosted by his power output. Look for Toglia to grace Coors Field sometime next season.

  • Daniel Bard Escapes With 21st Save Monday

    Colorado Rockies closer Daniel Bard managed to navigate an interesting ninth inning to earn his 21st save of the season in Monday's 2-0 win over the Brewers. Bard entered the game to preserve a two-run lead. He allowed a leadoff single, then another runner reached on a fielding error. Bard got the next two hitters out on flyouts, then walked the bases loaded before getting the final out on a loud lineout to second base. While this outing wasn't the cleanest, Bard has been a reliable fantasy option this season, converting all but two save opportunities with a 1.91 ERA and a 10.27 K/9 rate.

  • Kris Bryant To See Specialists Tuesday For Sore Foot

    Colorado Rockies third baseman/outfielder Kris Bryant (foot) will see specialists in Denver on Tuesday after missing Monday's game against the Brewers with a sore foot, per Rockies beat writer Danielle Allentuck. It remains to be seen if this is serious, but it would be a blow to fantasy managers if Bryant were to miss any more time this season with yet another injury. The 30-year-old has slashed .300/.367/.479 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 158 plate appearances. Fantasy managers should know more in the next couple of days.

  • Kyle Freeland Throws Seven Shutout Innings For Win

    Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland was at the top of his game Monday night, throwing seven shutout innings against the Milwaukee Brewers to earn the win. He gave up just four hits and one walk while striking out seven batters, raising his record to 5-7 and dropping his ERA and WHIP to 4.64 and 1.36, respectively, in 108 2/3 innings this year. This start breaks up a streak of three straight outings with at least four earned runs allowed. Freeland remains off the fantasy radar.

  • Jose Iglesias Leaves Monday's Game

    Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Iglesias left Monday's game early after fouling a ball off of his foot. Iglesias went 0-for-1 in the game against the Milwaukee Brewers before being replaced in the lineup by Sam Hilliard. The shortstop is hitting .300 with three homers, 32 runs, 34 RBI, and two steals over 81 games. Iglesias went for X-rays, which came back negative. Look for him to be back in the lineup in the next few days.
